Jasper Hotel recently joined the downtown Fargo, North Dakota, community, bringing with it excellent design and vibrant energy.
Jasper’s namesake derives from Jasper B. Chapin, a true character and integral figure in Fargo’s history, known not only for his time as mayor, but his many investments into the city. Numerous nods to Chapin’s life can be found through Jasper’s eclectic design intricately rooted in history. In a nod to Chapin, the Jasper Hotel logo is shaped like his frequently-worn, red bow tie. Not only that, but the entire second floor of guest rooms is adorned in red accent features, mimicking the color of the boldly red-painted second story walls of Chapin’s Continental Hotel, which was once located just across Broadway.
As an Aparium Hotel Group property, Jasper Hotel is the only one of its kind. With a ground level entrance into the 18-story, mixed-use RDO Tower, Jasper Hotel greets guests with the warmest welcome possible. Upon entering the hotel, guests are immediately greeted by Jasper’s flagship restaurant, Rosewild, and its inviting bar and lounge. An array of seating options, meant for anything from casual family gatherings to intimate first dates, make it possible for anyone to find a temporary home in this space. With the hearth and grill purposely positioned in the front of the restaurant, guests get front row tickets to Executive Chef, Austin Covert, and his team's skills.
